Good friend for dainty/S&P Corys
I'm planning on stocking my 20 Gallon long tank with a herd of Salt and Pepper (aka Dainty) Corys and maybe some shrimp, red cherry, amano, not sure which yet, but a hardy species.
I have two problems that a third fish species might fix.
1) I need to ensure the population of both shrimp and fish doesn't explode, so something omnivorous that would eat eggs or tiny baby shrimp and fish fry.
2) Any third species must not scare the shrimp or Corys as the tank has minimal cover.
It would be ideal if this third species was not a voracious food hog.
I considered a few male guppies, as they can be flashy, and cheap.
But in my experience guppies will do their darndest to eat every bit of food before peaceful Cory species can find it.
